G.K. Chesterton, Philosophy, and Evolution

It has been well said that, "Science is a slave to philosophy." In Lita Cosner's article, G.K. Chesterton: Darwinism is ‘An attack upon thought itself,' the author demonstrates how Chesterton's arguments regarding evolution, science, and morality apply just as much today as they did during Chesterton's life time.

The following is a short excerpt:

"Chesterton was able to see how the ideas in his day might affect thought in the future, and argued against what he saw the consequences of such flawed ideas to be. It is revealing that in nearly a century since he penned his arguments against evolution and Darwinism, those same arguments are as relevant today as they were in the early 20th century."

To check out some of Chesterton's other key arguments, see here.
